Remote peering allows connection to the shared peering fabric over a dedicated link. This is useful for customers who operate their own data center or have their own equipment located somewhere else. Remote peering is established on a case-by-case basis.
Understanding What Remote Peering Can Achieve
The growth of online media consumption has driven new levels of expectations amongst consumers. Across geographies, users are becoming hyper-sensitive to slow digital experiences and have zero tolerance for any downtime. To combat this, over-the-top (OTT) providers Netflix, media companies, and digital service providers have to bring their end-users closer to where the content and services meet. We call this “Keep traffic local”. This can be achieved by peering at an internet exchange like FD-IX.
